Chocolate Lava Muffins

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by MountainCook

You really need to cool the batter before you cook these. The first two (negative) reviews were when I had Splenda in the ingredients list - now I've gone back to the original sugar. But really, the Splenda worked for me, too.

This was so bitter! I couldn't even swallow the bite. Oh, and no lava.....
